mileage mania ...

On August 14, I reached my 2010 goal of 1,000 miles. The most I had ever run in a single year prior to that was 923. Obviously, I was psyched.

But yesterday, November 7, was even better. Because on a costumed run (we dressed as ROAD KILL and SAFETY SISTERS), the last long run of G's marathon training, I broke the 1,500 mile mark. Any guesses on what I'll be at on December 31?

Oh, and did I mention I looked wicked cute in the process ...

D, 3L, me and G before the run (freezing our tails off)


Us at mile 3 (Yes, my quad is real ...)


Running through Hollywood Cemetery about to hit mile 1,500


Me, G and D around mile 6


Looks like fun, doesn't it?

Hmmm... we're just starting the 2nd week of November. I don't remember your weekly averages, but I'm thinking its probably close to 40-50 miles per week? Even being conservative, I'm guessing at least 1,750. :)

How great that you wore costumes! You guys make running soo fun. Love it.

Yes your legs are awesome! The girl who WON the ultra (her 1st EVER!) had legs that kinda reminded me of yours. I see some serious squats in my future!

Congrats on the mileage. My guess on your Dec 31st is 1810.

Those are some SERIOUSLY bangin' legs. And I don't even feel funny saying that to another girl. When a girl has legs like that, you gotta give props. LOL

Road kill... bwahahahahaha.

I don't know on the miles, but I'm sure you'll make sure it means something! If you weren't already past it, I would go for 1231 by 12-31. ;-) Surely you can think of another cool number to shoot for.

Meredith said...
